While the world grapples with global warming, creative individuals have turned to the eco-friendly art of upcycling to help give old items a new lease of life and cut down on unnecessary wastage. Take for example Sheron Barber, an American designer who makes Hello Kitty pouches out of Louis Vuitton bags, and 3R.SG - a Singapore-based business that transforms unwanted luxury paper bags into actual usable handbags that are water-resistant.

Another eco-conscious fashion label that fits this list is LabelVmoon, a Korean online store that upcycles authentic luxury vintage buttons into jewellery, hair accessories, and bags. Their wares are all listed online, with free shipping to Singapore!

Read on to find out about LabelVmoon’s upcycled vintage button jewellery in Singapore!

LabelVmoon’s luxury vintage buttons are 100% genuine and range across eras from the post-80’s to 2000’s.

All of these buttons are from the most coveted luxury fashion brands such as Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL), and are sourced via a number of channels including auctions, boutiques, and private collectors from European countries like France, Italy, and UK.

They’re then turned into jewellery pieces like pendant necklaces, earrings, and brooches. The other materials used to make these accessories are all clearly stated in each individual posting, so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting. Most of the time, this involves 925 silver that may or may not be gold-plated, freshwater or glass pearls, as well as aluminium alloy for the hardware.

There are even a couple of bags and belts as part of their lineup, fashioned out of synthetic leather and adorned with the said buttons for a luxurious finishing touch.

If you’re not the fussy sort and don’t care too much about brand-chasing, their handbags, pouches, and sachets make great wallet-friendly substitutes for actual luxury items which can set you back in the thousands! No one will know that what you’re strutting around with is only “half authentic”. Shhh.

They also have hats, including visors, bucket hats, and rattan hats perfect for wearing out to the beach on a sunny day.

All buttons are thoroughly cleaned and refurbished to LabelVmoon’s best ability before being transformed into accessories by hand, but do note that some stains and discolouration may be inevitable. In fact, the older and more “vintage” an item is, the more prone it might be to slight imperfections - but that’s exactly where the charm of vintage fashion lies.

At time of writing, prices start from USD115 (~S$152.50) and hit the low USD200 range at the very most, with free shipping from Korea to Singapore. While this isn’t a small sum you can just part with without thinking, it’s still a reasonable amount due to the vintage materials used and the amount of time and effort required to hand make each item.

Besides, these are certainly more affordable than buying actual luxury branded jewellery, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find them anywhere else! In fact, most of their pieces are one-of-a-kind, so you’re highly unlikely to see someone wearing the same thing as you are.
